John Glossop at Cafe Creation

What a great day we had at Café Creation in Sheffield. Eight lovely ladies and eight lovely finished projects. They all did a great job covering their box with various metal techniques. A really pleasurable day back in the hometown.

Workshop bookings

I have a few free dates for the back end of the year if anybody would like to book me for a workshop,  I can cater for up to 12 if you have the space , alternatively I can do smaller groups if you would like something a bit more challenging. Take a look at the pictures and see if there is anything you are interested in or if there is anything else you would like to try I can be versatile.
I have taught many workshops and done many demos up and down the country from Northampton to Kendal. I am a technique based crafter so I can do most things from Shabby chic to industrial grunge.

Fabulous Finds ( Fountain Pen Nibs )


Fantastic find of the day


Those of you that now me will know that I'm a bit of a magpie, especially when it comes to old, rusty metal things . Now imagine my surprise when I stumbled across these goodies inside a little old typewriter ribbon tin, there are over 90 fountain pen nibs in this tin many of which are gold plated and most of them look like they haven't been used . Now I'm not greedy , if anybody would like any of these and have anything to swap , that you think I might like, feel free to message me .
Until then happy hunting

Butterfly Frame Workshop at Craft-e-Liza, Mansfield


Shabby Chic Butterfly Frame by John Glossop


Another great workshop. The Shabby chic butterfly frame taught on Saturday the 28th of Feb at Craft-e-Liza in Mansfield. This is a favourite of mine and one that I've taught well over a dozen times now, a lovely bunch of ladies and a nice relaxed atmosphere. I can only speak for myself but I had a really enjoyable day with lots of laughs and lots of coffee ( made by Alan ). All the projects turned out really good .Check out their work below.
As ever feedback is welcomed and if you would like to do this workshop near you send me a message.
